Request to Encourage San Carlos Apache Students to Remain at Carlisle
Date: 
May 30, 1889

Richard Henry Pratt reports that 35 San Carlos Apache students are eligible to return to their homes due to the expiration of their terms. Six of the students have elected to remain an additional year but Pratt notes that many more should remain and likely would with the encouragement from the Agent and their friends.

Pratt requests a letter from the Office of Indian Affairs to the Agent suggesting this course. Many of the students have requested to return to their Agency for the summer and then return which would cost more than their remaining at Carlisle for one year.
